Irridescent Vase, ideas on maker?
« on: October 10, 2005, 10:25:56 AM »
Hi Everyone!
Lately I've been expanding my horizons and buying different types of glass other than Murano, and here's 1 of the pieces I've bought! It is irridescent with 3 applied green pieces as you can see. I havent found a makers mark and was wondering if anyone had an idea of what it was. Thanks in advance!

Bohemian, maybe Kralik but that's just a guess based on the fact that they were a prolific producer of a wide range of styles, a for a wide range of markets from cheap decorative to top Art Glass.

Hi Peter!
This is a new field for me, so I thought I would ask.
Thanks for that info!

Ivo mentionned a couple of months back that a cut rim is a trait of Bohemian / Czech manufacture altho I must question him more on this. (poor Ivo) I don't know if that apllies only or particularly unfinshied rims whiah was under discussion then. I also don't know if it applies only to a certain quality of item, cetain makers or certain periods of time.

Is the rim on this polished ?

One feature I do notice on Bohemian pieces of this kind and period is the rounded edge base. Often the bidy is pushed down so as to make a kind of hollow foot. Here the lower part is somewhat conical which I don't recall seeing before.

The applied tadpoles (for want of the proper term) I have seen on a number of bohemian pieces but this feature was also used by a number of English makers: Webb comes to mind and possibly also Powel era Whitefriars.

The fine internal vertical optic ribbing I have on a couple of pieces of my own, one of them a bulbvase. I don't know if it is a Bohemian trait or if it has  any other significance for ID.

You seem to like pieces with a very subtle irridescence, as do I. The Bohemians did use irridescence quite a lot and the more subtle shades are quite beautiful IMHO.

The shape, iridescence and those peacock trails make me think of Rindskopf - also it seems to have a subtle twisted ribbing to the body

Have you sent a pic to http://www.loetz.com/ - is usually OK if you say you are on the Glass Message board and gives bang on ID's

They are what you are familiar with (thought strictly they were inspired by peacock feathers). In Carnival, there is a moulded vase that imitates the applied peacock feather motif - and it is called the TORNADO vase. The whirls were seen as tornadoes - because the lady who named the vase came from Kansas (and no, she wasn't called Dorothy). Another researcher from the same era called it the TADPOLE vase (she lived near the Great Lakes).

Some more peacock feathers aka tornadoes aka tadpoles - these are marigold iridised.
